Regulatory Status Legend
The TY25 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD273, also known as B7-DC or PD-L2. CD273 is a 42-kDa type I membrane glycoprotein encoded by the Pdcd1lg2 gene of the B7 family of the Ig superfamily. Pdcd1lg2 mRNA is expressed selectively in dendritic cells (DC), liver, and a few transformed cell lines (hepatic, neuroblastoma, and myeloid), but not in lymphoid tissues or macrophages. The protein has not been detected on resting peripheral T and B lymphocytes, macrophages, or DC, but it is upregulated upon activation of T cells, macrophages, and DC by a variety of stimulatory factors. B7-DC's receptor, PD-1, contains an ITIM (Immunoreceptor Tyrosine-based Inhibitory Motif) on its intracytoplasmic region and is expressed on activated B and T lymphocytes, suggesting that B7-DC-PD-1 interaction may be involved in the negative regulation of immune responses. The second PD-1 ligand, B7-H1 (PD-L1), is also a member of the B7 family of the Ig superfamily. B7-DC may also participate in positive immunoregulation, or costimulation of T cells, through an additional receptor, which is not PD-1 and distinct from the alternate receptor for B7-H1. Moreover, B7-DC is the first B7 ligand that has been found to participate in bi-directional communication; ligation of B7-DC on DC stimulates those DC. The TY25 antibody blocks the binding of B7-DC to PD-1, but not to its alternate ligand.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV421 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max at 421-nm, BD Horizon BV421 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the standard Pacific Blue™ filter set (eg, 450/50-nm filter). BD Horizon BV421 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting a 10 fold improvement in brightness compared to Pacific Blue™ conjugates.
BV421 is a polymer-based dye excited by the violet laser and is one of the brightest fluorochromes offered by BD Biosciences. Conjugates are typically 10 times brighter than Pacific Blue™ conjugates and are often as bright as or brighter than PE conjugates. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, BD Horizon BV421, Pacific Blue™, and BD Horizon™ V450 cannot be used simultaneously.

Preparation and Storage
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
The antibody was conjugated with BD Horizon BV421 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free BD Horizon BV421 were removed.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
- Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes are used in the same experiment. Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation. The BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions. More information can be found in the Technical Data Sheet of the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794).
